On April 28th, we curated another Sofar Sounds NYC! This time, it happened at a super trendy speakeasy called Hell Phone, in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn! And, we KICKED ASS that night! Check it out!
We love New York’s music scene. The city is the home of an infinite number of amazing musicians and artists! Every 3 months or so, we curate a spectacular live music event in partnership with the team at Sofar Sounds NYC.
We choose the 3 bands that are performing during the night….and honestly? WE KICK ASS, believe us!
On Saturday, April 28th, we had a fantastic night with a mix of different style musicians. The event was hosted at a pretty awesome speakeasy bar in East Williamsburg, called Hell Phone. It’s in the back of a restaurant and coffee shop called Ange Noir Café.
Way in the back of the coffee shop, you’ll see a beautiful red phone cabinet…open the door and walk in to explore! Be ready for a great night!
For this show, we brought in to perform:
- Jair Oliveira: a famous Brazilian singer, composer and producer. He is a former student at the renowned Berklee College of Music, in Boston and plays MPB (Música Popular Brasileira). In other words, traditional Brazilian Pop Music;
- Olivia Chindamo: a beautiful Australian vocalist! She’s best known for her natural and effortless ability to improvise or “scat”. As the 2016 Bell Award winner for “Young Australian Jazz Artist of the Year”;
- Kenny John: a very special and talented musician our Founder, Fê Paronetto, met one day passing through Union Square subway station in NYC. He was playing the trumpet and she was in awe! Kenny learned to play the trumpet and an early age and today brightens up the day of thousands of commuters in NYC, playing Jazz and Soul music!
And…we had a surprise! We had a special guest joining in for a song! Aline Muniz is good friends with Fê and was invited by Jair Oliveira to sing one song on stage with him!
